Bring Me The Sunset In A Cup

I awake from my nap Everything is crystal clear The night is awakening It’s almost here The sky is orange with a sparkling glow The sun is reflecting off the pearl white snow The sun illuminates my worry less face Dragging my mind to a peaceful place This is my get away from everyday work Dusting, scrubbing, and mopping up dirt Oh sunset Please don’t go! Your the only comfort I have ever known I have only one wish It will surely be enough Won’t someone bring me the sunset in a cup? –Macie

Bring Me Sunshine In A Cup…

Bring happiness, bring joy Fill me up. Bring me the sunshine in a cup!

Now is not yesterday nor tomorrow. It is the present don’t fill it with sorrow.

Be the LIGHT. Keep shining! Don’t create dark and keep on trying…

Now is now, now is TODAY. Share joy and happiness in someway!! -By: Megan Suedkamp

Bring me the SUNSET in a cup; so I can slurp it up. And be reminded, of the value of each day. So I can reflect, get lost in the moment, recognize my blessings, and sleep with no regrets.

May I sleep peacefully but with vivid dreams.

Bring me the DAWN in a bowl; simple and silent, recognizing my opportunity to start each day afresh.

Bring me intense AFTERNOON sun, direct on my brow, or perhaps rain, dripping down my face, as a not so subtle reminder to take captive each and every day.

Bring me the SUNSET in a cup….. -Fink

Bring me the sunset in a cup Orange red and pink Something delicious for me to drink

Warmth travels down my body, unfreezing my cold heart And a step outside, the sun is gone, it’s filling me Was this a mistake? Did anyone see?

Or am I the sun now Someone whom people will bow?

I sit perched atop a mountain, where I give light to all, So that the people of the world will not fall. -Angelina Hogan

Bring me the sunset in the cup, next to the plate of dark night sky With the fork full of bright stars, and the spoon of white clouds that fly high.

Then when it becomes 11 o’clock, I will have the memory of the sunset locked Tucked in bed with my meal of sweet dreams, thoughts of the bright sunset gleam But now I remember what you told me, Just before it was half-past three That tomorrow is another day, The sunset will lay as it did yesterday.

So now I do not have to be sad, the sunset will be there just as it had Next to the plate of dark night sky, with the fork full of bright stars, and the spoon of white clouds that fly high. -Isabella Rosinski

I’m ready to leave, ready to go Where am I headed? I do not know I’m sick of routine, sameness, and schedule Now out in the wild I’m going to meddle Back behind is all I understand Now I’m off to find new land Life was comfortable back were I was Yet a roof is defeated by the heavens above I’ve packed my bags, I’m off, goodbye I’m going to travel up mountains high Valleys low, and woods thick To life’s plan I cannot stick But as I travel on I realize I’ve left what I love far behind The people who care, the comfort of home I’m going back to where I’m from That is where it’s time to go The lonely shivers leave me cold Back to home I go I’ve seen the great sunset of orange Yet I miss the taste of homemade porridge Now it’s time to go home -J Sadler
